Seattle Eastside
January 10, 2018 / 5:30 PM

About this event

This is a special event as we have someone who is a pioneer in storytelling. How does this relate to a startup? If you can't tell your story in person or online then you have dramatically reduced your chance for success. Hanson Hosein is the Director of the Communication Leadership master's program at the University of Washington and the President of HRH Media Group LLC.

He's a pioneer of multimedia storytelling: as an Emmy and Overseas Press Club award-winning journalist for NBC News, a solo TV war correspondent with MSNBC and CBC and a documentary film director whose work has been streamed and broadcast worldwide.

While at the UW, Hanson has also been recognized as Seattle's "Most Influential" as he engages publicly with our region's leaders on-camera and on-stage. This work is captured in a permanent exhibit on innovation that he produced for the Museum of History and Industry, his book "Storyteller Uprising: Trust and Persuasion in the Digital Age," and through various global gatherings. Hanson regularly keynotes and convenes conversations for major tech companies.

He has law degrees from McGill University and the University of Paris, as well as a master's in journalism from Columbia University.
